Simple and well said. To many people expect a do all be all bike. Compare this to that,I have found that I choose a bike based on what I want it to do for the riding I will do not what the general population expect it to be. I ride 90% touring/sporting and 10% off road and when I say off road its a fire break or a dirt road that has been graded.
